    I bet the studio lawyers will get richer trying to close this loophole. I'd guess we see an injunction pretty soon.

    It seems a bit clunky, but it is a clever way around the copyright laws. I have a feeling it won't last though.

    "Zediva, a streaming movie service you've likely never heard of, is a most clever and useful middle finger to Hollywood"......with a opening statement like that your just begging to be sued. Apparently Venky Srinivasan is unfamiliar with the Chinese saying "A fool and his money are soon parted". :)
